      Informative, good insight into Czech history.

      Our guide gave us an overview of the time v. 1938 until today procures. Unfortunately we did not move very far from the meeting point at Charles Bridge - only through the Jewish quarter to Wenceslas Square. One could have seen the building of the Communist Party, the monument in honor of Jan Parlach and Saijz on Wenceslas Square and the church Kyrill u. Method, where the assassins of Heidrich hid. We then looked at this with a personal 6-hour tour.
